Overview
More
We are a small business, principally running a commercial sheep farm. We also have a passion for nature, the countryside and conservation. We embrace both business & tourism in an effort to make your experience of Ireland a memorable one. Agri-Tourism, Eco-Tourism, we warmly welcome you here. We are a private park, we maintain everything at our own expense which is why we make a small charge on entry. There is much of Kerry that is inaccessible, our park offers access through well maintained paths together with facilities as you may expect at any attraction. Washrooms, wheelchair access and much more. All of this takes funds to maintain and to enhance your experience here on Beara.

When traveling in Ireland, we were advised to travel the Beara Peninsula instead of the Ring of Kerry - we don't like tourist buses, crowds and the "attractions." We traveled all around the peninsula and the next day, we returned to Gleninchaquin, a stunning park...More

The area is quite beautiful. Lots of walking. Make sure you take rain gear because you can be a long way from the car if you get caught in a rain shower. We had a problem with tiny biting bugs near the lake.More
